Colts vs Broncos Highlights

Indianapolis is well into 2022 now, with the Carson Wentz era firmly behind them. With the North Dakota alum commanding the Washington Commanders, they are pinning their playoff aspirations on Matt Ryan aging arm. With training camp whispers nothing but positive around the former MVP, they start the season as favorites for the division. They have a solid team around him, with Darius Shaquille Leonard and DeForest Buckner anchoring a stout defense.

The Denver Broncos cannot be accused of playing it safe in 2022. They saw their new franchise quarterback and snagged him. Russell Wilson is a superstar, offensive leader, and Super Bowl champion. The last time the team from Mile High went for such a player, it went pretty well, with Peyton Manning leading them to a title and changing their franchise. Despite the loss of Tim Patrick to a torn ACL, they still have Courtland Sutton, Jerry Jeudy, and Albert Okwuegbunam to catch passes, and should have a solid offense.

In 28 meetings between these two, each has won 14 matchups, so the tie should be broken this week. They have also met 3 times in the post-season, with the Colts winning all the matchups in knockout football. The last meeting was a low-scoring affair, with the Colts winning narrowly 15-13. If you bet on NFL games, look for this one to be a higher-scoring game rather than that one, and the Broncos to defend their home and rack up a W.
